In an evolution of his previous discussion of comics at Royce Hall in 2000, Spiegelman takes his audience on a chronological tour of comics. Using many illustrative examples, including his own post-New Yorker images, he explains the value of this medium and why it should not be ignored, particularly in our increasingly post-literate culture. For "comics echo the way the brain works. People think in iconographic images, not in holograms, and people think in bursts of language, not in paragraphs."
